About this book

Emergency Musculoskeletal Imaging in Children is a practical, concise, and easy-to-read guide to the radiologic workup of acute musculoskeletal injuries and conditions in children. The book is conveniently organized by anatomic site and covers all acute injuries and conditions of the upper and lower extremities encountered in the emergency room, outpatient clinic, and office. Close attention is also given to normal findings and anatomic variants that can mimic pathology. More than 600 MR, CT, ultrasound, and radiographic images complement the text.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“Emergency Musculoskeletal Imaging in Children … is a concise text geared toward radiologists interested in improving their interpretation of pediatric fractures. … this book is a useful catalog of practical tips and experience-based knowledge from one of the stalwarts of pediatric radiology. … For the radiologist who only occasionally deals with childhood trauma, or who may struggle with confounding pediatric fractures, having this handy book in the reading room would be beneficial.” (Stephen F. Simoneaux, Radiology, Vol. 273 (3), December, 2014)
